Every winter, exemplary women Farm-Based Wellness Program graduates are invited to join the Community Health Ambassadors Program. They undergo training and participate in workshops to employ their leadership skills and learn behavior change methodologies to become the next generation of community change-makers.
The following spring, they return to the Farm-Based Wellness Program as leaders and help the next generation of participants reach their goals and work through challenges that arise. They also provide program support and run additional exercise programming. This experience develops job skills and opportunities, as well as developing the communities in which the Community Health Ambassadors live.
